The Bella Vista Property Owners Association has released a timeline for the Trafalgar Road fire, indicating the fire is expected to be out by June 13.
The POA, on May 3, agreed to take over extinguishing the fire. According to a news release issued by the Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality, the ADEQ will continue to inspect the site and provide oversight while the POA works.
According to a statement released by the POA, its working plan was submitted to the ADEQ last Friday, May 10.
The ADEQ needs to review and approve the plan, after which firms hired by the POA have three days to mobilize on site.
The POA has hired three firms, including engineering firm Environmental Resources Management, or ERM; Mississippi-based E-3 Environmental, which will provide work on site; and Little Rock-based toxicology consulting firm Center for Toxicology & Environmental Health or CTH, a firm the POA says has experience in extinguishing large fires.
Extinguishing the fire is expected to take 30 days, and site restoration will begin once the fire is out.
POA chief operating officer Tom Judson said this process is expected to cost about $4 million.
